Recycling and Poverty in Barcelona
Many people in Barcelona make a living gathering cardboard, metal or plastic scrap from regular garbage or recycling containers. I was taking coffee when I saw this man passing by with an enormous cart, he was going very fast so I had to run two blocks after him to shoot. Sometimes it seems kind of cruel to photograph people in such situation, I just wish my image humbly contributes to cause a stir in the consciousness of our community.
